To start with, the bet range of $0.10 - $100.00 is moderately diverse and should favor both novice and seasoned players. The highest payout of 5,800x is manageable but moderately better than many other slots offering as low as 2,000x - 3,000x. The RTP of 96.20%, is just above-average and should somewhat favor higher payouts. More so because the game offers medium volatility. Especially since the 20 max free spins and regular payout of 25x don’t create the faintest impression. So, the players might be left dry after going through the multi-layered bonus rounds. Overall the game is fit for players looking for quick fun along with some moderate payouts, like other Play'n GO slots.
The Bonus Features
The Random Features of Bulls
In the base game, any wild that lands will set off 1 of 3 random features:
You can get 2 to 6 wilds randomly added on the reels when the happy bull appears.
You can get 1 to 5 fully stacked wild reels from the proud bull.
You can receive 2 to 6 2x multiplier wilds from the enraged bull in different locations. Even though there are many 2x multipliers involved in a win, the reward is still only multiplied by 2x.
You can access the key free-spins bonus round by landing scatter symbols of the Golden Bull Statue on reels 1, 3, and 5. After receiving your 10 free spins, you'll have the option to play in one of three possible free-spin bonus rounds:
Happy Free Spins: If you select this option, additional non-sticky wild symbols are added and more wild symbols appear each time the wild bull appears during the free spins round. A re-trigger is necessary to add up to 14 additional wilds to the screen, which prevents a full screen of wilds.
Proud Free Spins: Whenever the Bull symbol appears during the Proud Free Spins bonus round, the bull wild gives 1 to 5 fully stacked wild reels. It is the same as the base-game feature, but it seems to occur much more frequently during the free-spins bonus round.
Angry free spins: The third and last feature you can select, is the Angry free spins bonus round. When the bull appears during this round, 2x to 14x multiplier wilds are further added to the reels.
As mentioned, landing three additional scatter symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5 will also retrigger the feature thus providing 20 free spins. These features are also available in the Bull in the China shop demo game.
RTP and Payouts
Fortunately, this game's RTP is a moderate 96.20%. Although maximum wins are theoretically feasible, they are exceedingly improbable. With a medium variance, grabbing a larger and more frequent payout could be somewhat possible.
At the highest bet, $100 the highest paying symbol is the Wild paying 5x-25x as it appears 3-5 times on the reel. The next one is the old lady paying 0.5x-25x as it appears 2-5 times on the reel. Other symbols include a cat vase, a fish vase, and a teapot paying 3x-20x, 2.5x-15x, and 2x-10x respectively on landing 3-5 times on the screen. The low-paying symbols are a pot, spade, diamond, heart, and club. To summarize, the bull takes center stage in this game. The melancholy beast serves as the game's wild sign, which means it can substitute all other symbols that appear in winning combinations, except the scatter. The golden bull serves as the scatter symbol for the free spins feature. We usually advise players to try the Bull in the China Shop free game before opting for the Bull in the China Shop real money variant.
Max Win and Top Multiplier
The game can grant a top multiplier of 5,800x which is just an average payout. Thanks to a somewhat moderate 96.20% RTP, these wins are somewhat feasible. The regular payouts are the Wild and the old lady in the game paying 25x at a max bet of $100.
